Books I Read in 2014

It’s crazy how the time passed isn’t it? I can’t believe the first month of 2015 is coming to an end and the last time I post anything on this blog was May 2014 -_-”

There were so many things happened last year, a life changing ones.

Well, this is my first post this year. Hopefully an opener to more posts and updates.

Apparently, I also read less book on 2014, like 9 books less than 2013.

I don’t know if I could read more this year, since one of so called life-changing-event I might going to tell you in another post, but I will keep updating it on the “Book List” page. And I will try my best to create more post.

Well, this is my 2014 book list:

So, it is 2014

Suddenly it’s January.

Yes, the year has change again. 2013 was over, 2014 is now here.

There are some things I start doing or do more in 2013.

I read more books (which actually is one of my new year resolution, so yeay! :D). You can preview the 2013 list here, or take a pick on 2014 list here.

I blog more. It stopped in the middle of the year, but it still more than the year before :p

I started jogging again (although I still found it hard to keep it as a routine).

I joined running races (about four of them :D). There were so many of them, especially in Jakarta that you can enter at least a race almost every month.

There are (of course) things that I meant to do or get done on the same year but finally did not.

I meant to keep blogging once a week (and at least publish one last post before the year ended).

I meant to clean up the room.

I meant to write more on my journal.

I meant to write a novel (even a short story will be nice).

I meant to update my dream book.

Oh, well. Like the quote said,

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. -Charles Dederich-

Let’s just do better in 2014. I wish you all an amazing year ahead and the ability to cherish each moment of the rest of your life. Cheers! :)
